Very Good Episode!
11 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The ninth episode in the second season of the Simpsons is a very good episode and has some funny jokes. There are two things I really like here. The first is the reference to Psycho. The very beginning is where that happens and the music and such is spot on. Secondly, I loved the satire on censorship. Censorship has been a big issue and it's nice to see the Simpsons poke fun at it.

In this episode, "Marge and Scratchy and Itchy," Maggie attacks Homer with a mallet and Marge blames the T.V show with Scratchy and Itchy and gets it banned much to the dismay of everyone.

Overall, this is a great episode. I liked how the episode centered on Marge for once and that's a nice change of pace. But once again, a very funny episode. I rate this episode 9/10.
